DEAD: Rev. Fred Phelps from Westboro Baptist Church
Posted March 20th, 2014 @ 11:44am

Fred Phelps, the founder of the anti-gay Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church, has died. His son Tim confirmed that he died overnight at his home in Topeka. He was 84.

Under Phelps's leadership, the Westboro Baptist Church became known for its hatred of homosexuals and for picketing military funerals -- and many rock and pop concerts.
